July 6, 2010

~Willem Dafoe~ was spotted at The Stinking Rose on Columbus with his girlfriend. (Pretty on-point and funny choice of location considering his recent role in the vampire movie, Daybreakers.) They sat in a romantic booth all the way in the back of The Bagna Calda room and shared sizzling skillet mussels and steamed garlic clams. The waiter said he was the nicest guy (no comment was made on his breath, however).

A-Rod (known on his birth certificate as ~Alex Rodriguez~) had lunch at Scala’s Bistro yesterday with friends. He ordered shrimp Louis and the pappardelle pork sugo. He told the sous chef, “It’s always great here, that’s why I always come back.” Nice.

A tablehopper reader was happy to see ~Sammy Hagar~ dining at Wayfare Tavern (which is likely to happen again, since Hagar is a partner in TyFlo’s upcoming El Paseo project in Mill Valley).

A tablehopper reader writes in: “Saw ~Chris Robinson~ of the Black Crowes tonight at Puerto Alegre on Valencia tonight. He waited in line ‘just like the rest of us.’” (Ed. note: I think some margaritas are to blame for the two “tonights.”)
